3 nights for 3 adults and 2 children from Easter Friday to Easter Monday 2013 - we booked an Ocean View Bungalow because all the Beachfront ones were full - so naturally I thought we would barely be able to view the sea...reality: Beach bungalows are about 10 metres from the water and the Ocean View - 15 metres! - as in practically on the water too, and they are stationed a row behind but between the Beachfront ones so you still get a direct and uninterrupted view of the beach! - just brilliant! The Bungalows are HUGE - they are so big and spacious, I was very pleasantly surprised - one double bed in a room on the bottom floor and 3 single in the upstairs huge loft area. It was a total bargain at $138FJD per night (YES - that's for 3 adults and 2 children!!!) Sure you have much more luxurious rooms at other resorts with all the trimmings, but for this price you would only get a closet sized room - it was a luxury having all that space. We ate in the restaurant our first night, the menu is very cheap - you're looking at around $6 - $12FJD for breakfast depending on what you want to eat and anywhere from $10-$20FJD for dinner - the service is incredibly slow as there is only one chef in the kitchen and the receptionist helps out too - but we ordered our pizzas in advance so were able to eat as soon as we arrived (perfect for when you have little kids). After that, we opted to cook our own meals, which was great as you have a fully equipped kitchen (except no oven or microwave) - but it didn't matter, we weren't there to cook full on gourmet meals! We loved having the full sized fridge and not the usual mini-bar fridge. Bungalow was clean, the pool was lovely and the staff pleasant, friendly and very helpful.
There are no TV's in the bungalow and the common room TV lounge is only open til 9.30pm so I took a laptop and some kids DVDs just in case it rained and we found ourselves indoor one evening - so that was handy because it did rain one evening and we had a DVD night :)
No photos - I normally take plenty of pics for reviews but unfortunately dropped my phone and broke it :( But not to worry, I have another one now.
Will definitely stay there again! Thank you Tubakula for a lovely Easter weekend!
